Exeter City Council have made a commitment for Exeter to be carbon-neutral by 2030. This is a significant ambition and will require the coordinated efforts of businesses and individuals as well as the local authority.
The City Council have asked Exeter City Futures CIC (ECF) to curate a shared roadmap to a net-zero Exeter, that sets out the scale of the challenge, the likely actions that will need to be taken (and by whom) as well as an estimate of the investment that will be required.
As part of developing this roadmap, ECF have recently released a Net-zero Exeter Blueprint which sets out a specification of all the things that Exeter will need to have in place to be carbon neutral. Over the coming weeks the Blueprint will be used to support a programme of public engagement – as well as focussed activities with businesses, community and city leaders – and open a conversation to capture the perspectives of all sectors of the city. The blueprint can be viewed on the ECF website: http://www.exetercityfutures.com/insights/blueprint/
As a business in the City your view on this document is important. We would be grateful if you would spend a few minutes to read the Blueprint and to complete a survey so that we can ensure that your voice is heard:
The information captured in the survey will be used by ECF as they gather insights about key areas of ambition and concern from the business community and ensure that these are presented in the roadmap. Exeter Chamber will be attending a workshop on the 18th February to discuss the roadmap. We would be grateful for your responses no later than Friday 14th February.
